Favorite Photo Friday - "Kindergarten, Here I Come""

February 3, 2012

Sarah in the Pink Sparkly Hat FINAL BLOG
Last Sunday, someone was a little reluctant to get up and go to church, because this was not your ordinary Sunday Mass, this was the kick off to Catholic Schools Week and the day that all new students are required to register for the upcoming school year.

Guess who is going to be a new student?

Yes, Miss Sarah will be attending their full day Kindergarten program.

She was not all that enthused when she realized that next year she would no longer be going to the daycare that she has grown accustomed to. Of course the thought of leaving Reags and all of her friends behind upset her a little too, but once we took the tour of her new school, and saw all that it had to offer, that frown quickly turned upside-down.

We are hoping that Sarah will transition easily and grow to love this school as much as Nick did. Sadly, this is his last year because the school only goes up to 8th Grade.
Sarah will be starting Kindergarten and Nick will be attending High School.
One will be learning how to read while the other will be getting ready to learn how to drive a car.
The 9 year age difference between them never seemed so far apart.... until now.

oh full day kinder is always a bit rough at first - she will adjust fine I am sure. How is momma's heart about this??

When Maddy started kindergarten, my oldest started medical school and middle was in college -- talk about an age gap!! Love it!

I believe Sarah will transition extremely fast in her new environment. She seems to be a very social butterfly that will easily flutter her wings and explore new and exciting adventures. Wow driving...can't even fathom. :-)

I was very worried when Z first started kindy, but we "sold" it to her as going to the same school that J went to... and seeing how much she wants to be doing whatever J does, that helped. A pity that when she first joined the kindy, that was the year that J moved to primary school, so they never were in the same school. She had the same teachers that J had, though, (even the same classroom), so that helped a lot.

I think your Sarah will do fine. :)

Precious, precious image of Sarah!!

Oh, I just can't bear the thought of high school yet. We don't have much longer to go either. And driving?!? My mind can't even go there. I am sure Nick will excel in both! And congratulations to Sarah for getting registered!

Have a great weekend!

xo,
Michelle

What an exciting time for your big girl, I'm guessing she'll rock kindergarten!!

And you already know that I ADORE this shot of your gorgeous blue-eyed girl. You need to print this one for me. :)

Have a great weekend and don't forget to sleep in tomorrow so you can stay up late texting with me while D runs (and runs and runs). Love you girlie! Happy weekend!

Tiffany said...

June starts "K" next year too and is so excited. Have a great weekend.

Briana's Mom said...

Wow - those are some big changes coming up ahead! I know both of them are going to amazing. I was so worried about Briana going to kindergarten this past August and I can't believe it is now February.

There is a 12 year difference between my oldest and youngest. The other day my oldest said, "Mom Adelaide isn't going to know who I am." He was pretty choked up by the fact that he will be leaving for college in just 6 years.

Jonni said...

What an exciting thing for Sarah to look forward to. She is going to be an awesome Kindergartner and such a lovely picture of your lovely girl.

Hugs,
Jonni

Sharon said...

If you bottle up her beauty, you could make a fortune. This picture is gorgeous! I hope she will adjust quickly, I have two in high school this year. Which I find quite interesting-you always think wait until they get to a certain point and then before you know it they are there!

Tara said...

Lisa, what a stunning picture! You are so very talented!

Kindergarten...wow... we are headed in that direction too! I can hardley stand it! At least there is a lot of time before September!

Gina Kleinworth said...

Really Lisa- it's happening too fast!!! Next thing I know I will be reading that Reagan is going off to school. Sarah is going to do so well. I can't wait to read all about her adventures.

FABULOUS shot of her too- those eyes get me every time.

Sharon said...

I hope she loves it! And how is it that our boys will be in high school next year?!?!?!?!

Ashley Sisk said...

That's super exciting - and what a gorgeous shot.

Patricia/NYC said...

These growing up milestones sure are bittersweet, aren't they? Sarah will do so great in Kindergarten! (that is a beautiful photo of her!)

Sometimes I wish we could just stop the clock for awhile!! lol!

What an incredible photo. How in the world do you ever decide what to place on your walls? I think you need a gallery.

Mama Zen said...

I'm sure that she will have a blast!

Kristy LifenReflection said...

I'm they will both do well with a great mom like you!

Honey Mommy said...

That is a beautiful picture of your daughter! I love it!

Do you mind telling me what kind of lens you were using?

Melissa Rich said...

I hope she loves it. It can be scary and exciting too. What a beautiful photo!!

Sarah said...

Beautiful photo.

Stefanie said...

She is just gorgeous in that hat! Love this pic... I can see why it's a favorite! And I bet she's going to blossom at her new school - she sure is growing up!
oxoxox,

Ivy said...

What a beautiful portrait of Miss Sarah. She's going to love kindergarten and meeting lots of new friends. Wow, where does the time fly? Seems like yesterday when we were both changing our gals little diapers and now off to school. Well, she'll do great!

Catherine said...

What a beautiful picture of your sweet Sarah!

Kindergarten already? I'm sure she'll do wonderfully!

*sigh!* they grow up far too fast!!

;o) Mommy, is it harder to believe that Sarah is going to kindergarten or that you'll *gasp!* be the (young, hot) mom of a high schooler?

Suzi said...

She is beautiful and she will excel! (Just look at those bright eyes!)
I have a 12 year old and a 10 week old (with 2 in between, so I understand the age difference)

Mimi said...

Oh Lisa, she is so beautiful!
Sarah is such a bright, generous and thoughtful lady that I'm sure she will get on great at kindergarten.
Our middle girl is driving, passed her test first time, and it's great! She drives herself and son to school every day, which is one less job for us to do!

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

KandK said...

Christa said...

So cute! My own blue-eyed girl has that same sparkly hat! (She's even wearing it on the sidebar photo on my blog!)

Rebecca Doyle Photography said...

Oh my goodness this is picture is so very precious!
Hope that she goes well settling into her new routine and environment :)

Eva said...

Adorable hat on a gorgeous little girl! Sarah is such a big girl!

Beautiful photo, as always.

Kayce said...

I bet she will thrive and shine in kindergarten! It's amazing to me that she's already off to elementary and Nick is gearing up for the next step of school. Time goes by too fast.

Christina said...

Mind if I ask...if you use an overlay on your pictures? They always look so dreamy. I use Florabella...but mine still never look quite like yours. jealous.

Jodee Leader said...

How exciting! I bet Sarah loves everything about Kindergarten! Kamree sure does! It's such a magical year!

Lisa,


LOVE this photo of Sarah. And the houndstooth ones are adorable too.

We are in the same boat. Will is going to high school and Kate probably will repeat kindergarten. Her teacher says she is doing fine academically but she is very very "young" for the class. Selfishly, I want to mover her along but we will probably give her another year.

Will and Kate are exactly 9 years apart too. Will is 14 and Kate is 5. Will can do driver's ed this summer!!!! UGH...shoot me now!
